Scouting Report
Looks bigger than he is in the crease. Can make acrobatic saves and is also extremely flexible, due to strong hips. Displays the confidence to succeed, but also good team-first qualities. Occasional lapses in concentration often lead to bad goals at inopportune times. Has consistency issues that prevent him from joining the ranks of the league's elite goalkeepers.
Long Range Potential: Solid, veteran goaltender.
